1958 Topps Football Cards

1958 Topps football card wrapperThe 1958 Topps football card set contains 132 cards. The complete set fit exactly twice on a 264-card uncut sheet, so there are no short prints or double prints in the set. To see what an uncut sheet looked like, see my 1958 Topps virtual uncut sheet page. You can see pictures of a 1958 Topps 5-cent display box on the Legendary Auctions web site.

Two cards in the 1958 Topps set, R.C. Owens and Jim Podoley, picture the wrong player. For many other cards that picture the wrong player, see my Mistaken Identities page.
